Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Is the truck lacking fuel or spark when you try to start it or both?Do the plugs have any gas on them?
Is the security light going out when you attempt to start it?
Ok, security is not the problem but clearly the fuel pump is turning off while cranking. Do you have a code reader by chance?I know you said you were getting the crank sensor code, this could stop injection and spark together. This and the cam sensor are used to fire injection and spark so it might be a good place to start. If you can get a code reader though, there should be a code stored for either or both if they are the issue.
Please let me know.
Can you pull a plug wire and check for spark for me? Just set it next to something metal and see if there is any spark jumping from the end of the wire.
Ok, are you getting any codes at this time?
No problem, I plan on being online all day so let me know when you can.
Ok, I would start with the crank sensor in this case. If it's not sending any signal then the truck isn't going to want to start. The fuel pump will shut down if it doesn't see any signal from the crank sensor. This for example if you were in a collision and the engine stalled, they don't want the fuel pump to keep on pumping fuel out onto the ground. I would go ahead with the crank sensor to be honest. If you have the code the computer isn't seeing the signal.
Please let me know if there is any more I can do to help you from here.

Sounds good :) I should still be here!
are you saying that you may have the wires crossed? Is there any pigtail or connector left so I could give you the wire colors or did this happen right where it goes into the sensor?
No problem, the connector should have A,B and C on it.
If you don't have these let me know and I will try to come up with a connector view.
Is ok man, takes as long as it take, other then dinner don't have any plans today but to work online. Here's the thing though, if you still have this code after the repair, you are probably looking at a bad sensor all together and may have to replace it anyhow.
I got you now, ok this is good then. It should start in this case.
Nope, not on one of this year. You should be able to clear the codes and crank it up. If it doesn't start then check and see if the 335 code came back, if it did, then the wiring to the computer has to be checked out.
It costs lots of time to do this, it pays ok. They have a computer section that you can apply to if that's your thing..All of the experts on here are verified by a 3rd party to make sure our credentials are true and not just someone feeding them a line :)
Go to the actual homepage at www.justanswer.com and there should be a link to apply.
Ok, I get that for sure. Hold it to the floor while cranking in 30 second intervals. It might be flooded and this should clean it out so it will start. Also, if that doesn't work, try some carb cleaner into the throttle and see if it will fire off of that.
Ok, this is because there are shims missing from the starter from the sounds of it. I am not sure how you would properly shim it up though to be honest.
If it does the same thing with the starting fluid. Repeat checking for spark. If there is spark, then I am going to say to pull the spark plugs and let it air out overnight. It might just be to flooded and this should clear it up for you.
